Under the weather

My uncle had a rotator cuff injury from skiing a month or so ago.  He had to have surgery last week to repair it.  I've had this image printed out for a while and thought it would be perfect for a get well card to send to him.
I created my own background using PTI's "Guide Lines 2" set.  I love how it lets you mix and match colors and patterns and create something really eye-catching.  I sponged on some gray clouds in the background to add to the look of a rainy, gloomy day.

Supplies:
Stamps: Eureka Stamps "2006" and "2007" digis; PTI "Guide Lines 2" all background stamps
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle die (background layer) and "Labels STAX"; Paper Smooches "Cute Clouds";

Challenges:
Aud Sentiments #176--any sentiment except birthday
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps #373--things with wings
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday--more than one die or punch
Penny's Challenge #321--anything goes
Crafting By Designs--thinking of you
Creative Inspirations #271--anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown #385--add dimension (some of the clouds and the sentiment panel are popped up with foam tape)
Tuesday Morning Sketches #395--sketch

Simon Says Stamp Monday--Layer it up
Alphabet Challenge--A is for anything with wings
Word Art Wednesday #274--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Cutie Pie Challenge #109--dies and digis
Divas That Cut--for the love of animals/pets
